Tough drive up on a beautiful fall day.

YEMThe Easy Route


A fun drive and ramble to the top with my wife. It's easy to escape the crowds, they don't go far from the parking lot.

Mark DoironMaybe Not the Smartest Thing I've Done  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2010

Mark Doiron

Look at that date. If you're looking for solitude, maybe hitting a popular tourist destination like Bar Harbor, Maine isn't the smartest thing to do on the fourth of July. Throw in near-record breaking heat and the only sand beach around (within the park boundaries), and you have a prescription for huge crowds. Regardless, we hiked very early in the morning and didn't see anyone until near the summit. The hike back down was crowded, even for the tough trail we selected (Cadillac West Face). --mark d.

Hiked up and back on the North Ridge trail. Fog and light rain completely obscured the summit view. It was still a nice hike with beautiful fall colors.

Couldn't see a thing, rained the entire time in the park. My wife did find a shirt on the beach she still wears today, 8 years later.

Dartmouth Hiker

After failing to climb Cadillac as a kid (accidentally did Pemetic instead), I was eager to give this one a shot on vacation.

My younger cousin and I got dropped off by Hadlock Pond and proceeded over Bald Peak, Sargent, Penobscot, S. Bubble, Pemetic and Cadillac in beautiful weather, ending on the summit where we got picked up. Took about 7 hours--my cousin slowed down a bit toward the end, but did pretty well for his first real hike.

Now I have to come back to try the Precipice! (it was closed while I was there)

A fun hike up with lots of options for stringing the various trails together to make a day of it.

On top several times, but my favorite hike was via the Ladder Trail and Dorr Mountain, then down the South Ridge.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2008


Just drove to the top because there were a million people at the trailhead. The summit was just loaded with people. Still, it was a nice view and the drive up and down is fun.

My last day at the park and decided to drive up to the top due to lack of time. Pretty flat on top and wasn't too crowded.

Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2008


Did Otter Cliff, Thunder Hole, Beehive, Champlain Mountain, Huguenot Head, Dorr Mountain and Cadillac Mountain from Blackwoods Campground and back. The march down Cadillac's southern ridge was the highlight of the day. Speechless.

Up the North Ridge. Fun scramble down into the Gorge and down south before looping around to take the Ladder Trail up Dorr. Great place and thankfully the rain held off until Flanders and I got back to the car. (sorry, that is pronounced "cah")
